Let's Plan Your Luxury Safari to Kenya

A Luxury Safari in Kenya is truly a special experience. It is one of the most established destinations for a safari – in fact, travelers have been visiting Kenya for a safari in the continent for several decades. There are over 54 national parks and reserves in Kenya.

Because of its diversity, access and experiences offered, Kenya has always been a favourite for safari enthusiasts. With vast savannahs and dramatic mountains, it is obvious why the animators of Disney’s Lion King traveled to Kenya’s Great Rift Valley and Masai Mara National Park to get inspiration for the film’s landscape.

Located in the south, the most established park in Kenya is the Masai Mara. Game viewing here is like no other. Sightings of lion prides, elephant herds, leopard cubs and the wildebeest migration (between August and November) are just examples of what to expect to see on a morning game drive.

A Kenya safari experience is particularly attractive because of the activities it offers. The Laikipa Plateau in central Kenya offers camel and horse riding, quad biking and tubing on the Ewaso Nyiro River. In the Lewa Conservancy, travelers can visit rhino sanctuaries, dog-tracking units, and other wildlife conservation programmes.

The capital Nairobi, is a hustling city which is usually the starting point, or end destination of a luxury Kenya tour. Although the city is predominantly a business hub, there are interesting visits to be made; For example, adopt a baby elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, or share a breakfast with giraffes at the famous Giraffe Hotel.

The Kenyan coast is also worth combining with your safari. An hour south of Mombasa lies Diani – arguably the country’s most beautiful beach. The coastline is formed of sparkling white sands, hugged by lush forests. For those looking for a more active stay, snorkeling, diving, and paddle boarding can be arranged. On the other hand, for those looking to sit back and enjoy the paradise coastline, do so with fresh seafood, delicious cocktails and wonderful service.

Masai Mara National Reserve, located in the south of Kenya, is often at the forefront of any Kenya safari because of its dense wildlife. Masai Mara is home to hundreds of lion prides, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, giraffe, hippo and crocodile, and more. In fact, the elephant population has been increasing every year.

From July to October, you can see the spectacular wildebeest migration herds. The wildebeest migration herds cross the Mara River from the Serengeti in Tanzania into the Masai Mara in Kenya roughly around July/August to enjoy the fresh pasture in Kenya before heading back into Tanzania in October. The migration movements vary each year depending on the rain patterns but, if you want to see the herds in the Mara, August to September is the most reliable.

There are so many other destinations in Kenya that offer fantastic safari experiences. These include Amboseli National Park (famous for its iconic backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro), Samburu National Reserve, Tsavo East, the Laikipia Plateau and Lewa. All of our itineraries are tailor-made, so we can combine multiple parks and destinations across the country for the ultimate Kenya safari.

Best Safari Camps in Kenya

We have put together some of our favorite, and most recommended safari camps in Kenya. Our specialists have travelled extensively around the national parks and reserves, so if you have specific questions, or just want to ask which accommodation we’d recommend for you, please get in touch!



How much is a luxury safari in Kenya?

This depends on many factors: which type of year you travel, which destinations you visit, and which camps/lodges you stay in. Generally speaking, a luxury Kenya safari can be anywhere from £3-4,000 per person. That said, there are some luxury tented camps and lodges which can charge anywhere from $1,000 per person per night, so it really does depend on your itinerary.


How long should I go on a Kenya safari for?

We would recommend between 3-6 nights. 3 nights minimum. This gives you enough time to experience fantastic wildlife, but also get to know the staff, managers and your safari guide.

Which Kenya safari is best for me?

A great place to start is determining which animal sighting(s) you’d like to experience (e.g. the great migration), activities you’d like to experience (e.g. walking safari, night game drives, hot air balloons). We can advise which time of year to go based on the above and more.

What is a typical day on safari like?

A typical day usually starts at 5.30am with plenty of tea/coffee. You will head out on your sunrise game drive around 6.30am for prime wildlife sightings, returning around midday for lunch, and/or a swim and a siesta. Afternoon game drives take place around 4pm. On average, a luxury Kenya safari will include around 7-8 hours on safari.
